Regarding Preserve Marriage Washington

I am being inundated with questions from individuals and pastors regarding recent articles in the Seattle Times and other news organizations across the state concerning the Preserve Marriage Campaign not being in compliance with the Public Disclosure Commission and current campaign finance law.

There have been two main stories that I am aware of--perhaps there are more.

Rachel La Corte, with Associated Press wrote this article on August 30, which claims that Preserve Marriage is not in compliance in regard to "bundling" contributions from churches.

La Corte wrote a second article on the subject, Tuesday, September 4, saying although the wording in the church instructions on the Preserve Marriage website have been changed, officials say Preserve Marriage is still not in compliance.

KOMO News carried this story.

This is all I know about this particular issue.

I am not a part of the Preserve Marriage organization. I believe Joseph Backholm and Chris Plante lead it.

I fully support the mission to overturn the homosexual "marriage" law. We worked tirelessly to help put both R-74 and I-1192 on the November ballot, with friends of Faith and Freedom gathering tens of thousands of signatures for both. I personally believed both were important to the defense of marriage.

We are continuing an extensive effort to educate people concerning the error of redefining civilization's oldest and most important model for successful families.

Marriage must only be defined as between one man and one woman.
